Given the tactics, the outrage, the threats, and the insanity that we’ve seen, the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh is going to cause a lot of public protesting… and worse.
Activists have already shown a proclivity toward mob rule and violence. That will continue, and increase, as the process moves on. There will be another scheduled “Women’s March” in protest of his swearing in. There will be people in the streets targeting anyone who wears an American flag or has a MAGA hat. There will be violence.
I am not saying this to discourage Republicans. On the contrary, I think it’s more important than ever to show people who would use those tactics that they don’t work, that you cannot intimidate conservatives into changing their minds. To do so only invites worse behavior.
